Chicken Fajitas a la Gutenberg

Here's a very easy recipe. Prepared several times at Gutenberg house dinners 2003-05; I copied this from Melody Herrick but I don't know the ultimate origin of the recipe. The combination of lime, cayenne and cinnamon is tasty; not spicy.

3 chicken breasts
Finely grated zest and juice of two limes
2 Tb sugar
2 t dried oregano
1/2 t cayenne
1 t cinnamon
2 onions, sliced into strips
3 bell peppers, sliced into strips
3 Tb oil




tortillas
salsa
sour cream
guacamole

Slice raw chicken breasts into strips. Marinate at least 30 minutes in spices and lime. Stir fry chicken in oil for 5-6 minutes. Add onions and bell pepper and cook 3-4 more minutes. Serve with warm tortillas and toppings.
